Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, your coin features a highly detailed profile of a bold black bear in its natural environment, as it moves across an open area in one of Canada's many forests. Against the towering trees in the background, the thickset bear pauses briefly as its keen sense of smell has detected a possible food source. By turning its head to the right, this inquisitive bear offers us a glimpse of its straight facial profile and features. Its stance is also ideal to convey its size, build and distinctive physical characteristics; from the clawed forepaws to the texture of the bear's fur, all are beautifully recreated through extraordinary, intricate engraving. The entire design is enhanced by multiple finishes that add a sense of dimensional layers to the art.


Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
